I go through a testing period with the monthly Microsoft Updates, and release them all on a given weekend to our workstations and servers. I was thinking about splitting up the load, say critical first and then important and recommended ones later. Is it best to apply Microsoft's security updates all at once or does it matter? Does anyone have any experience or pros or cons of doing it, one way or another?
MS seems to be providing more and more updates each month, and the .net patches can be large and time consuming, especially if you have multiple versions installed.
